How has the appearance of Columbia changed over time?
Today, Main Street shows more than one hundred and fifty years of architectural trends. Join our tour of Columbia’s Main Street to learn about the city’s oldest “skyscraper,” the State Capitol, and the numerous historic buildings that line the street.
Homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of each month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. This program is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. This month, we'll meet at the George Washington monument on the steps of the State House.
